Late last April, the Pew Commission on Industrial Farm Animal Production (PCIFAP) released the findings from its 2 1/2-year study on the current state of the meat industry, called "Putting Meat on the Table: Industrial Farm Animal Production in America." Unlike the 2006 United Nations report "Livestock's Long Shadow," the Pew investigation focused specifically on the human health and environmental implications of meat--including the toxic waste generated in the process and the mistreatment of animals in extreme confinement.
Below, Robert Martin, executive director of PCIFAP, talks about the report and the possibilities for a better meat industry.
